Can fines on my account prevent me from checking out books?
If the balances of fines and fees on your account reaches $49.99, you will not be able to borrow materials until the balance is paid below $50. To pay your fines:
- Visit metrolibrary.org and click My Account at the top.
- In the window that pops up, enter all 8 digits of your library card number (if your card number has less than 8 digits, add enough zeros to the front of your number until it is 8 digits long) or if your card number starts with ecard, enter that word along with the 7 trailing digits and your full last name (or sign in with your EZ Username and Password), and click Log In.
- On the Account Summary tab, click View Fines.
- Check the boxes to select whether to pay all or some of your fines and then click Pay Fines.
A balance of $50 or more will not prevent you from attending library programs, using library computers, or using materials in the library.
